Shettima Begs Residents As Jonathan Campaigns In Borno by Efewestern: 8:23pm On Jan 23, 2015
President Goodluck Jonathan will on Saturday take his presidential campaign train to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, in continuation of his re-election campaign rally.

This will be the second time the president will be making a trip to Maiduguri in two weeks, the first being a visit to soldiers who are battling terrorists in the state in commemoration of the Armed Forces Remembrance Day.

The inability of the Jonathan administration to arrest the Boko Haram insurgency has become a campaign issue of the presidential candidates of two major political parties – Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress and Jonathan of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Jonathan will be expected to make the issue of the Boko Haram menace one of the issues he will be touching on while in Maiduguri, as the people of the town will want to know what the President plans to do to stop the reign of the Boko Haram insurgents.

Coming on the heels of the stoning of Jonathan’s campaign convoy in Katsina and Bauchi states, the governor of Borno State, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, on Friday made a strong appeal to his supporters and all citizens of the state not to show disrespect to the President and his entourage during the campaign visit.

Shettima made the call in a statement by his media aide, Mallam Isa Gusau.

The governor said the call became necessary because of recent incidents in Bauchi and Katsina states during which irate youths reportedly went wild, pelting the President’s convoy with various objects.

He described the act as disrespectful, show of intolerance and extremely bad politics.

The governor said, “From what I have read or heard in the media, so far, there has not been any issue of such in any APC-controlled states visited by the President and Borno should not be an exception. We have political differences and our differences are legitimate and based on the principles of our political parties and what we stand for.

“But we must remember that His Excellency, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GCFR, is the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and as citizens of this country, we have an obligation to respect his office and his person.

“Our millions of citizens, who support the APC in Borno State and our presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, and anyone that supports me or any of our National and State Assembly candidates in the state, should shun any act of violence, intolerance and unlawful political behaviour before, during and after the President’s visit and should remain law abiding citizens of Borno State as our laws, norms and values demand.”

GEJ: "Boko Haram has infiltrated my government" #CluelessJona

Buhari went to the United States Army War College and attended Officer's Cadet School in Aldershot (United Kingdom) in October 1963 and the Defence Services' Staff College, Wellington (India) in 1973. This is the man we need to handle this menace. #saiBuhari

There was no need to plead with GEJ's supporters to be civil even when Buhari campaigned in Bayelsa. It's taken for granted dat PDP supporters would not take laws into their hands. the same cannot be said of buhari's supporters. They behave like their leader!

Now that is the APC spirit we are talking about. who knows, maybe it was PDP that sponsored the goons who were stoning Goofluck to garner pity for him.

I would rather advise the born people not to even come out at all than to start wasting their stones on him.

thinking that GEJ can be killed like that is funny dear. It is other Nigerians that will die, the much they can do is to hurt somebody guards and hurt themselves too.

How I wish the deranged governor of my state (osun) could be as gentle manly as shettima. The day aregbe starts making comments like this concerning the FG & presidency, is the day he's cured of its insanity.

Jonathan should simply call his illiterate TANoids to stop the violence.

His boys (MEND) bombed Abuja and he shielded them only to accuse them in 2015 of plotting his death.

He said Boko boys are his brothers and sisters ( he should simply welcome them tomorrow with open arms).

TANdroids opened gun fire on APC supporters in Rivers and Oga kept mute.(They didnt die but live)

Oga Jona deprived TANoids campaign dividends in Katsina and he was stoned.

PDP IS A TERRORIST PARTY. They should put their house in order and stop accusing the opposition.

GEJ till 2015.
Buhari 2015 >>>>>>>>>>>>till the desired CHANGE.
